Sempra Energy's First-Quarter 2015 Earnings Rise

- Company Reports Strong First-Quarter Operating Results

- SoCalGas Now Recognizing Revenues on Seasonal Basis

May 5, 2015

SAN DIEGO, May 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) today reported first-quarter 2015 earnings of $437 million, or $1.74 per diluted share, up from $247 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, in the first quarter 2014.

Beginning in the first quarter 2015, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) adopted an order by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to recognize revenues from the utility's core activities on a seasonally adjusted basis. The application of seasonality in revenues for SoCalGas will result in substantially all of SoCalGas' annual earnings being reported in the first and fourth quarters of the year, but will not affect full-year operating earnings. 

The $190 million increase in Sempra Energy's first-quarter 2015 earnings included $113 million incremental earnings due to the seasonal adjustment at SoCalGas.

Sempra Energy's first-quarter adjusted earnings were $428 million, or $1.71 per diluted share, in 2015, compared with $256 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, in 2014.  First-quarter 2015 GAAP results included a benefit of $13 million after-tax, due to the reduction in the loss related to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) closure, offset by a $4 million after-tax liquefied natural gas (LNG) development expense.  Last year's first-quarter GAAP results included a $9 million after-tax charge related to the closure of SONGS.

 "Our strong first-quarter operating results keep us on track to meet both our growth expectations and our 2015 adjusted earnings guidance," said Debra L. Reed, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy.

CALIFORNIA UTILITIES

Southern California Gas Co.

Earnings for SoCalGas rose to $214 million in the first quarter 2015 from $78 million in last year's first quarter, due primarily to higher authorized margin and the $113 million seasonal adjustment related to its core activities. This seasonal adjustment will result in a higher percentage of SoCalGas' earnings being reported in the first and fourth quarters, but will have no effect on full-year operating earnings.

San Diego Gas & Electric

First-quarter earnings for SDG&E were $147 million in the first quarter 2015, up from $99 million in the year-earlier period, due primarily to higher CPUC-authorized margin, increased earnings from electric transmission operations and the benefit of $13 million from the reduction in the current year to the loss related to the SONGS closure.  In the first quarter 2014, SDG&E recorded a $9 million charge related to the SONGS closure.

SEMPRA INTERNATIONAL

Sempra Mexico

Sempra Mexico's first-quarter earnings increased to $47 million in 2015 from $42 million in 2014, due primarily to revenue from the start-up of operations of the Los Ramones I pipeline and a section of the Sonora pipeline in the fourth quarter 2014. 

Sempra South American Utilities

Sempra South American Utilities had earnings of $41 million in the first quarter 2015, up from $35 million in the first quarter 2014, due primarily to growth in electricity sales.           

SEMPRA U.S. GAS & POWER

Sempra Renewables

Sempra Renewables had first-quarter earnings of $13 million in 2015, compared with $28 million in 2014. In last year's first quarter, the company had a $16 million gain on the sale of a 50-percent equity interest in the Copper Mountain Solar 3 project.

Sempra Natural Gas

Earnings for Sempra Natural Gas were $2 million in the first quarter 2015, compared with $9 million in the first quarter 2014, due primarily to lower LNG earnings resulting from lower natural gas prices and LNG liquefaction development expense.

2015 ADJUSTED EARNINGS GUIDANCE

As announced previously, Sempra Energy's adjusted earnings-per-share guidance range for 2015 is $4.60 to $5, which excludes the increase in earnings from the reduction in the current year to the loss related to the SONGS closure and the earnings decrease from potential LNG-related development activities.  Adjusted earnings-per-share guidance for 2015 also excludes the increase in earnings from the sale of the remainder of the Mesquite Power natural gas-fired generating facility, which will be recorded in the second quarter 2015.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted first-quarter earnings and adjusted earnings per share for both 2015 and 2014, as well as adjusted earnings guidance for 2015, are non-GAAP financial measures.  Additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures is in the appendix on Table A of the first-quarter financial tables.

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA ENERGY GAAP EARNINGS TO SEMPRA ENERGY ADJUSTED EARNINGS EXCLUDING PLANT CLOSURE ADJUSTMENTS IN 2015 AND 2014 AND LNG LIQUEFACTION DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES IN 2015 (Unaudited)

 

Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share exclude 1) in 2015, a $13 million reduction in the plant closure loss related to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) due to California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approval of a compliance filing related to San Diego Gas & Electric Company's (SDG&E) authorized recovery of its investment in SONGS, and in 2014, a $9 million increase in the plant closure loss as a result of reaching a preliminary settlement agreement on the closure and 2) in 2015, $4 million of liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction development expenses. Sempra Energy Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are non-GAAP financial measures (GAAP represents accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America). Because of the significance and nature of these items, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra Energy's business operations from 2015 to 2014 and to future periods, and also as a base for projection of future compounded annual growth rate. Management believes that these financial measures also provide a more meaningful measure of Sempra Energy's financial performance in 2015 in comparison to our previously issued adjusted earnings-per-share guidance. Non-GAAP financial measures are supplementary information that should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles for historical periods these non-GAAP financial measures to Sempra Energy Earnings and Diluted Earnings Per Common Share, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

SEMPRA ENERGY 2015 ADJUSTED EARNINGS-PER-SHARE GUIDANCE RANGE

 

Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance excludes 1) an estimated $0.14 per diluted share after-tax gain ($0.23 per diluted share, before tax) from the sale of the remaining block of the Mesquite Power plant, which sale closed in the second quarter of 2015 and 2) after-tax development costs associated with the potential expansion of our LNG business. Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the significance and nature of the excluded items, management believes this non-GAAP measure provides better clarity into the ongoing results of the business and the comparability of such results to prior and future periods. Sempra Energy 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance should not be considered an alternative to diluted earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP. Due to the uncertainty regarding the nature, timing and amount of the potential LNG development-related costs we may incur during the full-year 2015 and the extent to which such costs may be capitalized rather than expensed, we are not able to provide a reasonable estimate of such costs at this time. Accordingly, we are not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent to our 2015 Adjusted Earnings-Per-Share Guidance.

RECONCILIATION OF SDG&E GAAP EARNINGS TO SDG&E ADJUSTED EARNINGS EXCLUDING PLANT CLOSURE ADJUSTMENTS IN 2015 AND 2014 (Unaudited)

 

SDG&E Adjusted Earnings exclude in 2015, a $13 million reduction in the plant closure loss related to SONGS due to CPUC approval of a compliance filing related to SDG&E's authorized recovery of its investment in SONGS, and in 2014, a $9 million increase in the plant closure loss as a result of reaching a preliminary settlement agreement on the closure. SDG&E Adjusted Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the significance and nature of these items, management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides a more meaningful comparison of the performance of SDG&E's business operations from 2015 to 2014 and to future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures are supplementary information that should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 for Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) reflect the adoption of a California Public Utilities Commission decision authorizing SoCalGas to recognize annual revenue for core natural gas customers using seasonal factors, instead of recognizing such revenue ratably over the year as was previously authorized. This "seasonalization" resulted in $113 million higher earnings in the first quarter of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. While this seasonalization will cause variability in results from quarter to quarter within the year, it will not impact full-year 2015 results.

Reflects the impact of seasonalization at Southern California Gas Co. as discussed on Table D.

(2)

Management believes Income (Loss) Before Interest and Tax is a useful measurement of our segments' performance because it can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our operations exclusive of interest and income tax, neither of which is directly relevant to the efficiency of those operations.

(3)

Includes interest income, interest expense and preferred dividends of subsidiary.

(4)

After taxes, including a $17 million charge to reduce certain tax regulatory assets attributed to SONGS, the adjustment to loss from plant closure is a $9 million charge to earnings.
